Cationic peptides and proteins from seeds of plants of the family Malvaceae
Total cationic peptides from seeds of plants of the family Malvaceae were separated by chromatography. The molecular weights of the isolated peptides were determined by MALDI-TOF mass spectroscopy. The antifungal activity of total cationic peptides from seeds of plants of this family against Phytophtora infestans was demonstrated on potato disks.
